Great Teachers

Last Updated by WVIA Admin on

Every year WVIA and the Pennsylvania College of Technology are proud to present the Making a Difference Great Teachers essay contest. The goal of this contest is to provide an opportunity for students to recognize a teacher who made a real difference in their lives. WVIA then chooses several winners based on the mechanics of the student’s writing and the overall impact that teacher had on his or her student during their academic career.

Now let’s hear the stories of Coughlin High School senior Olivia Dalbo and her English teacher Barry Trievel and Valley View High School senior Alicia Cobb and teacher Colleen Kelly from Scranton High School.
